22nd May 2015
I've been looking forward to this day and dreading it in equal measure. My last day at Radio 1 after nearly 10 years. It’s only now I can look back on it all as a chunk of time and a roller-coaster chapter of my life.
The weekend shows I hosted with Reggie feel like another life time ago and even since starting my mid-morning weekday slot so much has happened.
I now find myself a married lady with a gorgeous son, two amazing step kids and another baby on the way. You listeners have been through it all with me and shared your own stories along the way. That for me has been so important; that we've all been in it together. I’ll miss hearing from you all and having that unique relationship that you only get through having a radio show. So firstly THANK YOU to all you loyal listeners that have laughed, sung and cried through every live lounge with me.
This leads me on to say THANK YOU to all the bands and artists who have stepped in to the Live Lounge and given it their all. That part of the show only works because the bands and artists have put so much time and energy in to perfecting their performances for us..
My teams over the years have been the best of the best, and I've learnt so much from every producer and assistant producer I've had the pleasure to work with. I'm also beyond proud to have won a Sony Gold award for the show and to have been able to help loads of incredible musicians and singers on their way.
I feel so lucky to have worked at Radio 1 and leave with so many gorgeous memories. On to new adventures!
Love and Peace
